What is the link between the U.S. economy and health security and preparedness? How are business decisions impacted by disasters and disease epidemics?

Join experts from the business and health communities for a highly interactive discussion featuring real-life examples of company policies that support a healthy workforce, minimize the impact of unplanned absences, and help businesses quickly resume operations after large-scale emergencies—such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, or infectious disease outbreaks.
